iTero Dental Scanner | Masri Orthodontics Livonia, Michigan

The iTero Oral Digital Scanner aims to provide greater efficiency to orthodontic and dental operations, while vastly improving patient experience. Using this Laser light scanner, dentists and orthodontic practitioners can take 3D digital images of a patient’s dental orientation and bite angles. This scanner totally eliminates the need for dental putty which is currently being used to take tooth impressions. This means that a good amount of time is cut in the pre-treatment process, which shortens the overall treatment time. Itero is now being adopted by dentists and orthodontists all over the US and the rest of the world.

iTero scans the patient’s mouth using a radiation-free laser imaging , which creates no discomfort or side-effects for the patient. In about 8 minutes, the video images renders an accurate 3D impression of the dental contours including bite impression and soft tissues. iTero’s scanner head fits comfortably in the patient’s mouth, enabling the practitioner to take accurate digital pictures. These pictures can then be viewed and analyzed on the computer, and 3D images of the before, during and after treatment scenarios can be created.

In addition to shortening the treatment time and increasing patient comfort, the Itero digital scanner allows for total customizability. Its trays and digital plans can be tailored to suit individual patient’s needs; this makes this device even more patient friendly.

iTero can be easily integrated into a dentist’s or an orthodontist’s practice. The practitioner won’t need a lab assistant to take the images, as is the case with other scanners and the putty-impression method. iTero has been shown to improve efficiency and accuracy of dental appliances, aligners and retainers.
